NATIONAL CHEESEBURGER DAY

Tuesday, September 18th: Celebrate an American tradition; today is NATIONAL CHEESEBURGER DAY. There’s some debate about cheeseburgers’ origin. One story claims that cheeseburgers were first served in 1934 at Kaelin’s restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. Another version says that the first Cheeseburger was served by Lionel Sterger at the Rite Spot Restaurant in Pasadena, California.

Regardless of which story is correct, it can’t be disputed that a cheeseburger is definitely an American creation. Louis Ballast of Denver, Colorado filed a trademark for the name ‘cheeseburger’ in 1936. He never enforced it though.

For some variations of your typical cheeseburger, like Garlic Herb Cheeseburgers, Caprese Polenta Burgers, or a Cheeseburger Mac, visit this site: http://www.beefboard.org/news/100915Newsfeed.asp
